If I could describe my classroom in five words, they would be: authentic, rigorous, supportive, engaging, and community. Our classroom is full of energetic 1st through 3rd graders.
In a Montessori classroom, each student is in charge of their own learning, with the teacher being their guide.
With each student learning at their own pace, they are free to sit where they would like in the classroom. Some choose to sit at a desk, while others choose a rug on the floor.
We focus on community building and taking time to get to know each child in the classroom.
Our beautiful, Montessori community is in need of a classroom rug! We will be using this rug for our community meetings each day. As a teacher and their guide in learning, the students can join me for presentations at this rug or comfortably work on materials of their choice.
“Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world."- Maria Montessori
This rug will be a great addition to the prepared environment in our classroom. By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
